Battery U expected to open this summer


Battery technology, business and innovation classes will be offered in a continuing education program expected to begin this summer on the San Jose State University (SJSU) campus in Santa Clara, California. The "battery university" is a joint initiative by the school and CalCharge, an energy storage accelerator program.


According to a Gigaom article, California is home to more than 40 battery companies. The courses are expected to help meet the needs of the fast-growing industry.


From an SJSU blog: "As an institution of higher education, we know the challenges in meeting the workplace demand for trained personnel in this rapidly growing and changing field,” said SJSU Vice President for University Advancement Rebecca Dukes. "For this reason, we are very pleased to be partnering with Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and CalCharge to meet this critical need of California’s clean energy ecosystem.”
